I’ve got fond memories of St. Louis, having lucked into a ticket to the 2011 World Series. Now I’m back twice in two weeks, presenting at the VMUG User Conference and TechTarget Seminars!
A few years back, I wrote an immensely-popular series of blog posts outlining the four things that were holding storage system performance back, and the ways to fix them. At the time, I created some presentation content to go along with these posts, and even considered pulling them into a white paper, but nothing came of that. Now, however, I’m pleased to announce that my Four Horsemen are accompanying me to the stage November 10, 2015 at the DeltaWare Data Solutions Emerging Technology Summit in Edina, Minnesota.
The only way to build a datacenter with flexibility and scale is automation. And this is as true for networks and servers as it is for storage. IT architects increasingly design integrated and automated systems, not static interconnects. They must learn scripting and look for solutions that are responsive to changing demand. And they have to start getting excited about companies playing in this space.
This year for my Truth in IT seminars, Iâ€™m shifting away from virtualization to focus on enterprise storage once again. But this wonâ€™t be any ordinary â€œstorage 101â€ seminar. Rather than trying to talk about every element, Iâ€™m focused on whatâ€™s new!
There are nine cities down and two more to go for my 2014 Truth in IT seminar series, â€œThe Truth About Virtualization.â€ As I wrap things up in Miami and Tampa, Iâ€™ll be looking forward to my 2014 schedule, which takes me to fifteen cities and sees a shift back to storage.
